Tacky and misleading to use "vegan" for a leather shoe,
This review is from: Franco Sarto Women's Vegan Pump (Apparel)
What was Franco Sarto thinking using the name "Vegan" for a leather shoe, then marketing it with "don't let the name fool you?" That goes beyond tacky to downright misleading. I won't be buying from this company again any time soon.

So other than whining about the name being Vegan,and made of leather,do they run true to size,just because of your review I just might buy a pair of these.

Thanks for the heads up - I don't generally check to see if something is made of leather when it clearly states "vegan" - that may not be a concern for everyone, but what a bizarre marketing ploy... would people looking for leather even take a closer look at something labeled "vegan"?
And for those of you who may not be morally opposed to using animal products, that's fine - some of us are. If you were against fur and saw a coat called "faux baby seal" - wouldn't you be a little upset to receive an actual fur coat and find out you're wearing a dead baby?
It's false advertising, and it IS tacky and misleading - period.

It even says in the description, "Don't let the name fool you.." 'Vegan' is just the name of the shoe, just like Not Rated's 'Ruby' bootie, which isn't Ruby in color.
